TypeScript makes perfect sense for growing projects that need to scale and have a variety of contributing developers. With this update, we lay the foundation for more technical changes.
We recommend staying on the latest version of Ark; however, this upgrade does not break any APIs, thus
v2.0 nodes are still able to join the network. Development on
v2.0 has ceased in favor of the newer Typescript version.
v2.1does not break any APIs and can be performed incrementally in the network.
v2.1is backward compatible with
v2.0; thus a downgrade is possible at any moment.
Plugins relying on the core-APIs may need to be refactored to TypeScript, and cannot rely on the same modules anymore. The changelog contains all changes and references to each commit.
